Monica Magnussen

Design Director

Alex Simpkin

Senior Web Developer & Designer

Alex produces artwork across a wide range of disciplines for both digital media and print. Always paying keen attention to both form and function, he delivers work with focussed communication, bold visual impact and considered user experience.

Ema Johnston

Web Developer & Designer

Ema is a graduate web developer and UX designer, who believes the web should be fun, creative and accessible to all. Her prior experience in music promotion, events management and collaborations with advertising agencies, helped shape her passion to create impactful online presence and experiences, for individuals and businesses alike.

Neil Dalgleish


Neil is the company’s founder and has been involved in communication design since 1985. Although much of Neil’s time is spent running Hillside’s sister company Hillside Outside, he remains involved in the creative process, able to provide expertise and guidance during development and provides a key role during the creation of ideas.

Fiona Rae


Fiona is our trusty accountant, making a weekly visit to our studio to crunch the numbers that are there to be crunched. When not here, she’ll mostly likely be down in Peebles, helping Neil and the rest of the Hillside Outside team plan for their next big event.
